    Mu-43 Monthly Photo Contest for July 2019 - The Road Less Traveled

    I usually ride with a small backpack since I am out for 4-6 hours at least and I want to stay hydrated (water bladder in pack). There is plenty of room for a small Micro 4/3 camera with a compact lens. On occasions I take several lenses with me, when with friends planning a photoshoot...

    Buy VF viewfinder or 2nd body with viewfinder?

    Here is an odd one: I use a VF-4 on top of the E-M1 :doh: No, seriously I do! When I need to photograph NOT at eye level (trying to get a different POV and a more interesting angle) nothing beats the ability to swivel the EVF up so I can look down into it Suddenly those hard to get angles where...

    Showcase Kodak Cine Ektanon 63mm f/2.7 16mm film lens

    As shown in this image, I find this lens "not suitable" for distant subjects (the heavy vignette and the blurred edges) yet you use that "fault" to your advantage here. Wonderful image where the bokeh indeed adds interest. I don't think a modern lens would create a more suitable photograph of...

    Yesterday was my last chance to find a "road less traveled" before I head to Europe; maybe my last opportunity for an image suitable for this challenge. Sunday afternoon ride (07JUL) with sun low on the horizon (it's winter here Downunder) and of course taken with Micro 4/3. heading home by...

    Mu-43 Monthly Photo Contest for July 2019 - The Road Less Traveled

    I am headed to Europe (Austria) on Saturday and my fear is indeed what your picture shows: crowds beyond belief :( I am afraid that the concept of "road less travelled" is rather elusive there, but technically your first image fits my view: it is indeed relatively less travelled than the bridge one

    July is a month for travel: the Northern hemisphere is in "vacation mode" for the summer. And while most people with mobile phones are interested in hitting the "Instagram famous" location I would like to see off-the-beaten path images, away from crowds. The theme I propose is "The Road Less...

    SHOW: Before and After Shots

    What editing software do you use? Does it allow you to layer your work and mask certain areas? If your editing is however done with simple adjustments that effect the whole image at once then my style will certainly not be applicable to you.

    SHOW: Before and After Shots

    I am NOT a fan of "blending modes" used with liberal abandon since it's just a set of pre-set filters that give me very little understanding in what is happening. I like to be able to change things in my image in subtle ways. As for "layers style editing" there is a ton of instructional videos...

    SHOW: Before and After Shots

    Leaves: fascinating structures that offer great textures begging to be photographed. Or that is how I feel about them. But not all leaves seems suitable; I prefer large ones that allow more DOF and composition control. So I found some interesting ones and shot this (converted from RAW, no...

    C&C Too much?

    Most of the comments have covered the subject and yet I am compelled to add my own. I am not a big fan of global tinting/PP. While I do like the process of the first image (clouds only) I dislike that treatment over the land/water, even if I like the composition better. Not sure what editor...

    Does the OM-D tend to underexpose?

    I agree, but there is more. I notice way too often the average photographer with decent digital mirrorless cameras baffled by what "exposure" should look like and yet we are blessed with viewfinders that give us incredible feedback: they show us the image as it will look like once it's taken...

    SHOW - Black & White Landscapes / Seascapes

    there is something that doesn't check out for me in this image: the distant waves/shore that are out of focus. Somehow to my eyes that scene is not possible since the depth of field is too deep and that portion of the landscape should well be in focus. Is this a composite image?

    SHOW - Black & White Landscapes / Seascapes

    Oh, I see. However to me the ratio of man-made intrusion in a scene has to be kept low or somehow the image is not appealing, even if technically well executed. Maybe it's my personal quest for more natural places (away from urbanization) that skews my perception. I do understand that for most...

    Lenses with character - your types
